Looks like UNI also have some direct-fit rectangular applications (but
for trucks only). I'm going to take those FRAM equivilent numbers down
to FLAPS and see if any of them might fit in my 5kt CIS box. An added plus
of foam would be that you could probably squish it enough to get it in and
out without removing the turbo inlet pipe and airbox lid.
